Resuscitation Council (UK)


We are keen to promote research into all aspects of the science, practice and teaching of resuscitation techniques, and can provide financial support for research projects. We have an annual process for applications which generally starts in March of each year. All applicants are notified whether or not they have been shortlisted in August and those applications which are shortlisted are reviewed by a panel of experts. Successful applicants are informed about the final funding decision in December.

Funds available in 2017

The annual process for applications for the award of Research and Development Grants is now open to individuals working in the NHS or a university department within the United Kingdom. The researcher should hold qualifications appropriate to their grade. Such individuals will usually be doctors, nurses, resuscitation officers or other professions allied to medicine, and should have a credible track record of conducting such research projects or be working under appropriate supervision.

Grants are designed to support the generation of new knowledge in resuscitation science and education.

The closing date for submissions is 17:00 on Wednesday, 31 May 2017. Please note applications received after this date will not be accepted.

Applications must be submitted electronically using the Application form.

For full details and criteria please refer to the Guidance notes when completing your form.

All applicants will be notified whether or not they have been shortlisted in August. Shortlisted applicants will be informed about the final funding decision in early December 2017. For general research enquiries please email:
